Really really nice Neal and Bryan

A (just in from weeding the garden) scruffy rendition of my Lot 661 ZXX - been wearing these regularly for the last couple of weeks and am really enjoying wearing a slimmer jean … well the legs are slimmer, there's plenty of room in the arse

They look great! who did the hemjob?
..funilly enough i spent Sunday doing my next door neighbours garden (he's 100 and its a bit too much for him) in my Junky's, i managed to coat the lower legs with grass pulp from the strimmer, they now look a touch greencast Ouch

I like those 43's! is the denim unique to that pair? i wouldn't mind some in a year of two if they're still in the regular line up. Hopefully they don't fall by the wayside like the Lot.616, why were those lightening strike jeans discontinued? did they just run for one season.

I'll endorse anything for cash

Thanks Neal

I’d been neglecting the garden so needs must - although I usually get roped into cutting our neighbour’s hedge when I’m spotted. It was a dry day so I’ve just dusted off the earth from the knees, but I really don’t mind what activity my jeans are used for or what state they get into.

I got them hemmed before they were shipped over - just part of the service from Hoosier

The 43s were a variation on the denim FW usually use and dyed deeper. Only when they’re side by side with the 47s for example will you see the difference.

The lightning strikes appeared on a variety of their jeans - the most popular and so most famous were the 39s but others (you mentioned one series) carried them.

I suspect you’ll see that come back at one point. FW tend to dig into the archives after sufficient time has passed - although to answer your initial query I don’t think you’ll see the 43s again. Just my opinion but they were too specific in time and not representative of wider periods they normally favour

I don't swim. I can swim. I just don't have much cause to do so in the normal run of things.

Your right, it was the 39's i was thinking of, i remember really liking the cut but couldn't remember the era, when i typed 'Freewheelers lightening bolt jeans' into broogle the Lot.616 appeared i thought 'that doesn't really look like my kind of cut Confused

Shame about those 43's they'll have to be another one that got away, im sticking steadfast to my 'buy a pair of jeans, wear them to destruction...then buy a replacement pair ethos'

I’m slowly getting to that stage too

Wear until done then move on - I suspect I’ll wear these 661s in that manner.

I was a bit surprised when you referenced some ‘skinny’ jeans, but I thought it was only to do with those lightning bolts rather than some new look

I wouldn’t be surprised if you manage to get hold of a pair of 43s at some point - and who knows, maybe they will get re-relased? I was only chucking in my opinion earlier
